Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Based on the author’s own tumultuous journey from boy to man, this epic traces young David’s progress from his mother’s sheltering arms to the miseries of boarding-school and sweatshop and the rewards of friendship, romance, and self-discovery in his vocation as a writer. A cherished favorite with generations of readers (starting with Dickens himself), this novel combines a compelling narrative with a memorable cast, from the brutal Mr. Murdstone to the exuberantly optimistic Mr. Micawber. Unabridged republication of the classic 1850 edition.

About the Author

After a childhood blighted by poverty, commercial success came early to Charles Dickens (1812-70). By the age of 24, he was an international sensation whose new novels were eagerly anticipated. Two centuries later, Dickens' popularity endures as readers revel in the warm humanity and rollicking humor of his tales of self-discovery.

Format: Paperback
This is absolutely one of my favorite books of all time, probably tied with Jane Eyre for that title. The meticulous, loving detail with which Dickens renders David's world for the reader creates a source of complete and delightful escapism. It sounds kind of dumb and corny, and I'm cringing slightly as I write this, but reading this book makes you feel like David is sharing his soul with you!
The characters are so vivid, creative and wonderful - the Micawbers, Aunt Betsey, Uriah Heep, Steerforth, Peggoty, Rosa Dartle, Traddles, Dora and David himself, of course. Most of them fall into the categories of people I'd love to know in real life, and people it would be simply awful to know!
This book has everything I love about Dickens, and everything I love about books in general - delightful humor, sentiment that is legitimately moving, earnestness, tragedy, and a plot and set of characters that are truly captivating. David Copperfield is delightful, warm and beautiful - a book that I was able to completely immerse myself in and feel happy while reading.

It was not clear to me that this was a children's edition. It could be mostly my fault, but I think that needs a lot of emphasis.

I love it. The book is very thick and the price is excellent. It is the perfect addition to my bookshelf`s classical section. Though it may not be fancy it retains all that makes it wonderful, the words of Dickens.

I liked a Tale of Two Cities but found it at times ponderous. I heard this was his masterpiece and I don't doubt it. What unique characters and lively prose. Everyday 19th century England brought to life for better or worse. A pleasant, leisurely way of telling a story and a style that draws you in. You get used to him and gladly await the next reading.

You can get this and his other novels for free on your Kindle or Ipad.

I'm in the process of reading all of Dickens works and this is my favorite so far! It's a huge book but it's written so well that it goes by quickly. The characters are so fleshed out it's as if you are actually getting to know a real person. You just don't see fiction like this anymore.
